    no clue I think we can't do hotsport anymore w/ 2.3.3 right??
  4. You can not remove the 3G Mobile Hotspot from 2.3.3 on the DX. It is built into the stock ROM to prevent tampering/free tethering through root. You're only option is to load a custom ROM/CM7.

    Would you mind sharing what settings you use with the app. I am rooted and installed the version of wifi tether, but still go to the verizion page where they ask for cash...I'd appreciate any help you would offer. Thanks.

    Hey guys I tried just straight renaming my whole settings.apk to settings.bak and I was still stopped cold by verizons pay site... any ideas? Not a fan of the battery life on 2ndinit roms and need tether to work... for free! Anyway, I might be stuck with those other types of roms but there has gotta be a way to kill this.

    Any dev has an idea I volunteer as guinea pig!
